Sunday Worship

July 21, 2024

We worship at 10:00 am at Kennicott Park (4434 S. Lake Park Ave.) or online. Masks are optional. We offer Kid City children’s ministry for nursery – 5th grade; they are also welcome to remain in the service.

Children are essential participants in the life of our church. They are not the future of the church, they are the church today! Parents and caregivers can expect children’s classes for Pre-K – 5th grade and nursery for the little ones during the sermon portion of the service. On the first Sunday of each month our children remain in the worship service and there will be a children’s message. 6th-12th grade youth also participate in a weekly gathering on Sunday evenings at our Ministry Center. Please email Pete Blodgett, Director of Discipleship for Children and Youth. with any questions for or more information.
